I lost the formatting but I'll try to recreate it:Trump doesn’t mean what he saysThe Lyft driver tells me he’s terrible at public relationsI don’t know I say he’s seems pretty successfulBut take health care the Lyft driver says It’s terrible, it doesn’t work its too expensive these socialist countries like englandThey don’t have the healthcare we have. We can get anything done if we haveThe money, so we need to just get rid of that stupid Obama care right nowI get what you’re saying I say though I don’t but I’m learning that you Can’t convince white people by saying they’re stupid and wrong unlessYou’re that African poet who yelled at my German colleague once(That was glorious) but that’s an exception to the rule. So I sayI used to think that too but my best friend, she’s broke and hasn’t hadInsurance of years and ObamaCare saved her life and saved her husband’s life andThey had serious health problems they couldn’t address, so I think you’re wrongAbout this. He was silent, thinking. I don’t know what heDecided but I’m hoping for some slippage in theRigidity of his Opinions.
